It was a mere 26 hours ago when I noted that Gerard Butler‘s deal on Motor City would, in all likelihood, create a problem for Brilliant, his planned reunion with The Ugly Truth helmer Robert Luketic. Surprise, surprise — Butler‘s aligned himself with Albert Hughes, and the other production’s now been forced back.
In place of the heist film – which may not even happen now - Luketic told The Telegraph (via DarkHorizons) that he’s got a couple of other projects in the mix, both of which are “a matter of the stars coming into alignment and small miracles being performed.” The one of most interest seems to be an untitled picture starring Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), who’s been “formally” placed into the leading role. Though the helmer “can’t really talk about it,” we at least know production will take place across New York and Mumbai.
Then there’s some “revenge thriller” for Zhang Ziyi, as well as an animated feature being made with Animal Logic (Happy Feet); that’s “looking pretty solid,” in case you want to know. So, if you’re interested in Luketic‘s career path – there’s someone, right? – at least some developments (if not confirmations) are lying ahead.
Are you curious about a collaboration between Luketic and Hemsworth?
